Hello old friends…

We hope you are keeping safe and well. We are so happy to say that all Paperchase stores are now open in line with government guidelines and we’re extremely excited to welcome you back!

We’ve cleaned, restocked and taken every care to make sure you can enjoy the usual fun and colourful experience of shopping at Paperchase – with a healthy dose of safety on the side.

The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and customers is our top priority. To ensure this is maintained at all times, we have implemented the following measures across Paperchase stores:

  • Enhanced cleaning and personal hygiene procedures, including hand sanitiser for colleagues and a limit to the number of customers in a store at any one time
  • Social-distancing stewards and signs dedicated to managing queues and ensuring customers can navigate stores safely and effectively
  • Protective screens at till points where it is more difficult to maintain a two-metre distance
  • PPE for colleagues who wish to use it, as well as social distancing on the shop floor and in back of house
  • Making card payments easier with an increased contactless payment limit of £45

Please note that from Friday 24th July it will be compulsory for customers to wear face masks in shops.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the Paperchase community for continuing to support us during this challenging time, and for your cooperation in helping us to look after everyone.

For those of you who would prefer to shop from the comfort of your home, you can find a superb selection of stationery, cards, gifts and much more, 24/7 at

Will I get my online order?

Our website warehouse and carriers are currently experiencing a higher than normal volume of orders. We’re aiming to fulfil all online orders, but it may take a bit longer than normal. Currently, where Standard delivery is selected, orders are taking around 3 to 5 working days to reach their new home. Please bear with us – it’ll be worth the wait, we promise.

What are my delivery options at the moment?

For the time being we have switched off Click & Collect services, but our Next Day Delivery services are now back (with an earlier cut off at 4pm). All orders successfully placed on our website before 4pm will have the option to choose Next Day Delivery, Morning Next Day Delivery or Nominated Day Delivery. We are working hard to make this cut off later but also to deliver everyone’s orders within the timescale they expect. That said, please be patient if your order is delayed - we are currently experiencing higher than usual volumes. .

Is the warehouse safe/clean?

We have taken precautions to reduce risks in our warehouse for both colleagues and customers. This includes increased cleaning on site and implementing social distancing procedures for colleagues.
